Hundreds enjoy community centre summer schemes

30th July 2018

More than 500 young people from across Fermanagh and Omagh have taken part in Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s community centre summer scheme programme in July.

The summer schemes, which took place in Council operated community centres – the West End Community Centre, Enniskillen and CKS, Strathroy and Hospital Road Community Centres in Omagh – provided 5 – 14 year olds with the opportunity to get active, have fun and to make new friends.

The summer schemes are just one part of the Council’s annual multi-sports and summer activity programme for children and young people which operates across the Fermanagh and Omagh District.

Speaking about the community centre summer scheme programme, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Howard Thornton, said:

“It is wonderful to see and hear just how much our young citizens enjoyed the community centre summer scheme programme.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is committed to providing opportunities for our young people to lead healthy and active lifestyles and the summer schemes are a great way for young people to try new things, get active and make new friends while having lots of fun.”

The community centre summer scheme activity programme included activities such as arts and crafts, balloon modelling, multi-activity sessions and day trips to places of interest and visitor attractions.

The Council’s multi-sports and summer activity programme continues into August with activities taking place at Omagh Leisure Complex; Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen; Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea and the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown.

Other activities taking place include multi-activity sessions at a number of Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) and rural community centres, the summer scheme bus programme and a disability swimming programme.
